I'm attempting to perform a task within R based on the Drive Volume Name/Label, however, I can't figure out how to read the drive label in as a variable. I'm not looking for the letter like C:. I need the actual name of the mounted drive, "Bills Computer". Any ideas???
If you are on Windows, something like this should work:
shell("vol C:", intern = TRUE)
After that you can parse the volume name from the output string like that:
s <- shell("vol C:", intern = TRUE) substring(s, regexpr('is', s) + 3)
